CAPRICE returns to his first love: the world of fairies (cf their trilogy Elvenmusic). Girdenwodan is a dance form widely practised in the world of faerie, a world parallel to ours.The word Girdenwodan is only a term coined for the use of humans, while the real name of the dance shall remain secret.The “backbone” of this music is the harp, playing even patterns, and the short accented bass, indicating the rhythm and harmonies.
Faerie equivalents of flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, violins and cellos are used as solo instruments. Because the time flows differently in the faerie world, we perceive the time signature of Girdenwodan as 5/4 or 7/4, although for faeries such time signature sounds even and regular.
Come and see the round dance of elves, pixies, goblins and mischievous fairies. This album marks a high point in the discography of Caprice.
The digipack and booklet are wonderfully illustrated by the British artist Marc Potts, it resonates as a powerful talisman.
